At least 37 persons have been injured in a fresh suicide bomb blast in Benisheikh, a village barely 75 kilometres to Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State.

Authorities of the General Hospital in Maiduguri on Monday said that all casualties were currently receiving treatment while an unidentified corpse has been deposited at the mortuary.

Unspecified number of persons have been reportedly killed in the incidence which villagers opted to bury.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Boko Haram sect is largely suspected, as the terrorist group has carried out similar attack in the past.

The Borno State Government recently commenced rebuilding of Benisheikh town ravaged by Boko Haram even as villagers initially displaced are beginning to return home.
